MWENEZI –Representatives of different Government departments who met at Neshuro Growth Point have deplored the state of the Civil Protection Unit in Mwenezi District which they said was unable to deal with emergencies because of a total lack of resources.
The meeting was called to assess the disaster preparedness in the country and was chaired by Kenneth Madziva who represented the District Administrator. The DA chairs CPUs' at district level.
Present at the meeting were representatives of the Ministry of Education, the local council, the Police, the Army and various other arms of Government.
The officials who were unanimous in their sentiments said that the CPU in Mwenezi has virtually nothing; it has no money, no vehicles, no medicine and
therefore can only attend emergencies but cannot help.
They also lamented the red tape that CPU has to go through in order to send information to top offices in Harare.
"Our local CPU does not have resources to deal with emergencies. CPU does not have anything on the ground be it food, medicine or money. The Government should equip it with a special vehicle to deal with disasters in this area.
"We don't want the CPU to attend the disaster scenes for the sake of attending, it should be obsessed with preparedness rather than responsiveness," said
one  Government  representative.
"Protocols also are a challenge in various departments that work
with the CPU as they hinder the smooth flow of information. Information takes ages to reach the head  offices  in  most  cases  and their responses do not come in time," said another member. health news
